Keeping Your Eyes On The Ball
My computer was slow, especially my Internet access. I was getting pissed off at my ISP, Telus. Everything was so slow, that I was considering switching to another Internet Service Provider. Last Tuesday, I had to use my laptop at home, which is very unusual, plugged it in and the Internet blindingly fast. What? Obviously something was wrong with my desktop. I started looking into it. The problem was with the networking card and the networking cable.
Since I was already at it and had to replace the networking card, I decided to reinstall the operating system… First the backup, then replace everything and start reinstalling… When everything was finished, cleaned and ready, it took a full day and half.
I'm terrible. I often do these side jobs, I look busy but waste my time and completely forget to keep my eyes on the ball.
When I feed my dog, he never looks at me, he stares, he focuses intently on his food. He doesn't care about me. He keeps his eyes on the ball and never get distracted from the important thing.
What should you do next?
- Is it better to email an existing customer?
- Is it better to send a brochure to a prospect?
- Is it better to improve your photos?
- Is it better to post a new blog post?
- Do you have a list?
All the successful photographers know how to keep their eyes on the ball and others like me struggle with it.
